Description

    [Texas Rangers]. Gem-Sized Portrait of Ranger Jesse Lee Hall, circa 1875. This oval, sepia toned portrait measures .5" x 1" (sight) and features a young, mustachioed Hall, chest up, turned slightly to his left. The photograph is housed in a 2.75" x 1.75, gutta percha frame of floral design with suspension ring at the top.

    Jesse Lee (Leigh) Hall (1849-1911), a native of North Carolina, came to Texas as a schoolteacher in 1869, but began his law career shortly thereafter, serving for a time as marshal for the town of Sherman, deputy sheriff for Denison, and sergeant at arms for the Texas Senate in Austin. Hall joined the Texas Rangers as a second lieutenant under Captain Leander H. McNelly. When the latter became ill, Hall assumed command of the company, serving as captain until 1880, and was instrumental in ending the Sutton-Taylor Feud. He served as agent for the Andarko Indians in the late 1880s and briefly returned to the Rangers in 1889 as a private in Company "F." He saw service in the U.S. Army during the Spanish-American War as a scout in the Philippines.
